After Uber has exited Singapore’s transport scene, many pet-lovers and owners have started panicking because the UberPet service will no longer be available.
It is not supported by Grab, the company taking over all of Uber’s Southeast Asian operations.
Most forms of public transportation and taxis do not allow pets on board, so taking a trip with one’s pet – be it to the vet or otherwise – can be quite the hassle for someone without a car.
Many have taken to social media to express woe for their furry friends.
The UberPet service is something also very much wanted by those overseas too.
However, there are also many other alternative transport services available for those with pets. They may not be as easily or as readily available as UberPet was, and probably slightly more costly than the former, but they are there in aplenty.
As of now, it remains unclear as to whether Grab will be looking into the service of transporting pets.
